Instability of a swept-wing boundary layer modulated by stationary flow perturbations
Journal article, 2013

A collection of illustrations of swept-wing boundary layer secondary instability at low subsonic flow velocities is presented in this paper. The experimental results, obtained by hot-wire "visualization," provide detailed insight into the spatio-temporal structure and evolution of oscillations in the three-dimensional laminar boundary layer disturbed by longitudinal vortices and streaky structures.
